We have been to Brunel’s on a few occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is absolutely out of this world and the service is first class. We always have a fantastic night when we visit.

We enjoyed a superb meal at Brunel's. The cuisine is innovative and full of flavour and use of local ingredients. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful too. It deserves its awards.

My daughters and I really enjoyed our experience in Brunel’s and felt completely safe in these strange times. The service was expert and friendly. All dishes were unique and delicious although I found one component (sorry I don’t remember name) of my halibut meal rather bitter.

As usual, this little gem that punches up there with the best that NI has to offer does it again. For those that have not tried you are missing out - this is exceptional food with the VERY best service.

The dessert (panna cotta) was utterly disappointing. It tastes amazing but the serving size was ridiculously small. Some training needs given to the staff as the server advised the chowder as a special request would come as part of the lunch deal and then we were charged separately. Between the dessert and the bill an otherwise lovely meal left a Bad taste.

Absolutely perfect, top quality service with a smile, outstanding food and quality. Will Definitely be returning next time we are down, provided we can get a table :-) it certainly knocks sport off of Deans in Belfast.

Excellent food, very seasonal, could do with an extra fish alternative as well. Desserts were very small, an Irish coffee or baileys coffee should be allowed as a substitute if you dont want your third course to be a dessert for the same price as three courses Overall food is of a very good quality.

Busy night and the restaurant clearly couldn’t cope. Over an hour for our starters and an hour and a half for our mains. Staff are always friendly with a nice atmosphere

We enjoyed our time in you place. The food was lovely and we were 30mins late due to a traffic jams in Newcastle and the manager Fiona was very understanding which we were thankful for. Our servers were also lovely and hard working. Regards Archie

The only thing that I would be picky about is having the vegetables come as a side order, i think they should be included in your meal. Yes if you want extra by all means charge for that. But other than that we had a lovely meal and will come back again.

Really enjoyed our dining experience at Brunel's. The seafood was outstanding. The menu was mouthwatering and everything came out perfect, the specials were fantastic, particularly the sole. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The service was friendly and very professional. We valued your efforts to comply with Covid and felt very safe. Thanks Fiona.
